Twitter backtracks after blocking 'inflammatory' Marsha Blackburn ad

Twitter has decided to change course on a controversial Senate campaign advertisement by Rep. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., and will allow the ad to run, even though the social network initially claimed it violated ad guidelines.

Blackburn confirmed on Fox News’ “The Story with Martha MacCallum” Tuesday night that Twitter will allow her ad to be promoted on the social media platform.

Twitter said that they made the decision after reconsidering the “context of the entire message,” according to a report by Recode.

Blackburn said she believes Twitter reversed its decision because “the American people rose up.”
